Learn About Testicular Cancer: What All Men Need To Know About Testicular Cancer

Whatever your reason for wanting to learn more about testicular cancer, there are many different places you can go to get the information you desire. The most obvious place would be the library, as there have been countless books published on the subject. Over the course of a man's lifetime, he has a 1 in 250 chance of being diagnosed with the condition. This makes testicular cancer one of the more common types of cancer. Fortunately for those who have already been diagnosed, there is a 90 percent survival rate overall associated with testicular cancer. If a guy catches it in the earliest stage, it is estimated that the survival rate is around 95 percent.

Still, just because fewer people die from testicular cancer doesn't mean it should be taken lightly. If you know anything about testicular cancer, you know that it doesn't discriminate. No matter how healthy you think you are, it can still wreak havoc on your body. Take, for example, Lance Armstrong. He was arguably one of the world's best athletes, definitely in shape and taking care of himself, when his world got rocked by a testicular cancer diagnosis. While he battled his way through it, testicular cancer almost killed him. Another popular example is Canadian comedian Tom Green, who lost a testicle to the cancer and made a documentary about his experience.

While testicular cancer affects more Caucasian men than any other race, people of all ethnic backgrounds should know as much about testicular cancer as possible. You are most likely to be diagnosed when you're between the ages of 15-40, but it is also found in infants and men over 60. It's very important to know the symptoms of testicular cancer, so you're aware of what is normal and what you need to see your doctor to discuss. When you know a lot about testicular cancer, you can safeguard yourself from having it develop into something that can't be controlled.
